My Rating: Five Outrageously Cute and Oh So Sexy Stars*****
Oh my, just when I thought this series couldn't get any better, IT DID! Let's face it, folks; for most of us, 2020 has certainly been the year from h*ll, and we all need something to make us smile. I'll be the first to admit that I've been a little down and desperately needed something to cheer me up. Well, Hot Pickle was just what the doctor ordered! Laughter is truly the best medicine, and I challenge you to not spontaneously break out in uncontrollable laughter through this entire book. Heck, the first chapter had me laughing so hard that I almost fell out of my chair, and I was in my doctor's office when it happened! Needless to say, my behavior garnered more than a few strange looks from other patients. Of course, several wanted to know what I was reading and naturally, I shared the love! Be still my heart! I love, love, love Hot Pickle by J.J. Knight! And Max Pickle is the bomb! If you're a diehard rom-com fan like me, you probably already know that J.J. Knight is only one of the pen names for the very talented Deanna Roy. She writes romantic comedy and MMA sports romance as J.J. Knight, angsty contemporary romance as Deanna Roy, sweet smalltown contemporary romance as Abby Tyler, and sexy romantic suspense as Annie Winters. But it matters not what name Knight uses since everything she writes is magically delicious, and Hot Pickle is no exception. And no, there's no actual magic, just good old-fashioned and very well written contemporary romance with the perfect blend of humor, heat, and heart with a light sprinkle of angst. I had already decided that Knight could never top Big Pickle, the first book of the series, but she absolutely did! Without a doubt, Hot Pickle just knocked Big Pickle out of first place for the best romantic comedy I've read this year. I was completely hooked in the first chapter and couldn't stop reading. I snickered, snorted, chuckled, giggled, and outright belly laughed through the entire book. It was fabulous! I was still reading when my doctor walked into the exam room and caught me mid cackle. She's also a big reader and we often share book recommendations, so she wanted the name of the book, which I was only too happy to give. She actually whipped out her phone and purchased Big Pickle and Hot Pickle right then! I have no idea how Knight could ever top these two books, but I have confidence that she will, and I can hardly wait to read Book 3, Spicy Pickle. But just a quick FYI, you don't have to read Big Pickle to enjoy Hot Pickle. Each can be read as a standalone and NO Cliffhangers. Since we're introduced to the entire Pickle family in the first book, Big Pickle, it is my humble opinion that reading it first will greatly enhance your reading experience! But, as usual, I digress, so let's talk a few details.
Hot Pickle is a fast-paced, easy to follow, fun-filled, exceptionally well crafted and edited, full-length, stand-alone contemporary romantic comedy filled to the brim with witty dialogue, cutesy one-liners, laugh-out-loud humor, a cast of engaging and endearing characters, a little angsty drama, a few spicy secrets, heartwarming romance, and an attraction that won't be denied. The narrative is beautifully written in the first person with clearly defined his and her perspectives from the two protagonists, drop-dead-gorgeous bodybuilder and LA Pickle owner Max Pickle, and beautiful, hardworking body makeup and tanning artist Camryn Schultz. These two were a match made in heaven. Their attraction was immediate, as well as undeniable. Max thought Camryn was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen and Camryn thought Max was the cat's meow. Meow! And Max certainly had Camryn purring! lol... They set the pages on fire and blazed into my heart! The dialogue is smart, snappy, at times outrageously funny, and flows effortlessly. I fell head over heels for Max Pickle. He's the middle sibling of the famous Pickle brothers and owner of LA Pickle in Los Angeles. His store had been a gift from his father while attending college in LA. His dad, Sherman Pickle, owner of Manhattan Pickle and former chairman of the Pickle Deli franchise, did the same for his two other brothers when they left for college. The eldest, Jace Pickle, went to school in Austin, Texas and now owned Austin Pickle, and the youngest brother, Anthony Pickle was now proud owner of Boulder Pickle. Their Grammy Alma started the ball rolling many years ago, when she opened the original store, Brooklyn Pickle. But Max was so much more than just a wealthy deli owner. He was kind, loyal, hardworking and also an aspiring bodybuilder whose star was on the rise. His former college roommate, best friend, and now training partner, Franklin Schultz, was the one who convinced him to become a bodybuilder. And he was preparing for his first competition when a tanning mishap almost knocked him out of the running before he even stepped on stage. Thankfully, Franklin's sister Camryn was a professional body makeup and tanning artist, and she was already at the show working on several of her clients. She really didn't have the time for her brother's friend and straighten out someone else's work, but sweet overworked Camryn could never say no to her big brother. And this is where Knight's magic begins. Max and Camryn's meet-cute was, without a doubt, the best and funniest I've ever read. It was HILARIOUS! It was lust, um...love, at first sight! Unfortunately, Max's best friend and Camryn's brother Franklin was an a-hole of epic proportions and tried to chase away anyone interested in his sister. But when has anything stopped a Pickle from going after what he wanted?!? Never! And naturally, hysterical chaos and hijinks ensue!
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain some spicy love scenes! If you want to read romantic comedy at its best, this is the book for you! I dare you to read it and not laugh your butt off! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! J.J. Knight is an automatic buy for me, every single time! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! If you read only one rom-com this year, read Hot Pickle! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Max Pīckle is, indeed, the whole páckage, but it’s his pàckage's exuberance around Camryn that make for some exuberant, unanticipated barks of laughter from the reader herself. In his defense, Max falls hàrd the first time he sees Camryn, his training partner's sister. And Camryn is the one doing Max's spray tans prior to his bødybuilding competitions.
Have you seen those teeny tiny shorts the bødybuilders wear?! It's not like Max can wear more than a itty bitty mòdesty covering while getting tanned, and his pìckle can’t help but stand up and take notice of the gorgeous woman who’s up close and personal with his skīn. But Camryn is a professional and has seen it all before. No big deal (but most definitely a very big dìll) if she can just set her pesky attraction aside.
I effortlessly fell vat over pīckle for these two and adore them together! There's so much delicious pùsh and pùll and tàsty chemistry between them. These two are flàshing each other so many signals that a normal person could see them from outer space, but they both have no clue! It makes for a bùrn as slow as the pìckle fermentation process.
It's laugh-out-loud, snort-your-drink, absolutely-do-not-read-this-book-in-public hilarious, with this crafty wrìter's clever wit creatively showcased on every page. With lots of spìcy, hòt pīckle scenes, there's just as much emotion and heart that guarantee Max and Camryn will easily abscònd with yours. With a pìckle flavor to suit every reader's palate and comedic brilliance at every turn, Max and Camryn's story is an absolute must read! So don’t dīlly dàlly; go hìt that 1-Click button now so you can start reading this sàvory story immediately.
Max is working on being a bodybuilder in his spare time. Side note: I am shocked and surprised at all the actual work that goes into bodybuilding (not just lifting weights...the whole food/drink thing). He always seems to have a happy-go-lucky attitude. Nothing seems to ruffle his feathers. Until...Camryn. She seems to have all of his attention.
Camryn is a tanning person. Again I am shocked at what goes into this for competitions. I enjoy her attitude as well. That time on the swings was so sweet!
We do get to see the whole Pickle bunch and their shenanigans are a bit fun to watch...err read.
Overall a solid story. Who doesn’t want a hot pickle on the side?
Can’t wait for Anthony’s book!
